Nature Publishing Index ranks NUS among the world’s best 50 research institutions

The first institution in Singapore to break into the Nature Publishing Index (NPI) Global Top 100 list in 2012, NUS has done even better this year by taking a leap up the rankings chart. The NPI 2013, released today, places NUS at the 46th position among its Global Top 100 list of research institutions, up 28 places from 74th in 2012. The University has also moved up three spots in the NPI Asia-Pacific rankings this year to the 6th place, outdoing top research institutions in the region.


Delighted with the University’s performance in the NPI rankings, NUS President Professor Tan Chorh Chuan said: “This is a recognition of the impact and quality of our research, which has increased dramatically over a broad range of fields. Our Research Centres of Excellence for quantum technologies, mechanobiology and cancer science are at the frontiers of their fields, as is the Singapore Centre on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering in which NUS is a partner. Several NUS research centres and programmes are international leaders in areas ranging from graphene and new materials to lipidomics and medicine.“


Mr Nick Campbell, Executive Editor of Nature and Global Head of Macmillan Science Communication, said: "The National University of Singapore's reputation as one of the Asia-Pacific's strongest research institutions is likely to be enhanced by this year's output in the Nature Publishing Index: NUS almost doubled its contribution to the Nature family of journals from last year, with a particularly strong contribution from its materials researchers. My thanks and congratulations go to all those NUS researchers who published their research in our journals."
